  25. So glad I had a chance to know Connie for the short while she worked with us at her new job; we were looking forward to her returning to work and are dismayed that she will not. We ate lunch together twice and I learned of her faith in Christ and her prior job at the church. May it comfort you to know she is with our Lord Jesus Christ and may your fond memories of her sustain you during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  26. My sweet baby, I don’t know how to live without you. I Love you more than life itself. This pain I feel will only cease when we are together again. I know you are with Daddy and Ruth Ann now. I know you are looking down on all of us. I know you are resting now and your are not in pain no more. All your worries are over. I can imagine you dancing in Heaven with your sister and daddy and rejoicing with Jesus. Until we meet again to part no more. LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK

  27. Months have passed and it doesn’t feel like time has moved. I keep expecting to get a text from you checking up on me and I know I’ll never get another one from you. It’s never easy losing someone. It’s so hard when that person you lose is your mom. It’s strange to live in a world without you mom, and I don’t know if anything will ever feel quote on quote, “normal,” again. I miss you more than I can say, and I know you’ll always be with me as I now go on without you here. I know you would tell me what aunt Ruthie always said in times like this, “stay strong, stay focused.” that’s what I’m going to try to do.

    Love you always mom.
